Did you know that it is possible to upload pictures from your Nokia N series phone to your Flickr account? A lot of Nokia N series mobile phones are supported and many have the Flickr application build in. Among the supported phones are the N73 editions, the N80, N93 and the N95.
You can load the specific website for each Nokia phone from this page, just click on the phone that you are using and a website will load with instructions on how to activate the feature.
Two possibilities exist for each phone. If the application is already installed all you have to do is put in the username and password that is displayed on the webpage. Please note that they differ from your normal Flickr username and password but that is how it works.
If the service is not available yet you can download a configuration file which is offered on each phones website as well and install it on your mobile phone. Flickr will then be an option once the application has been installed on your mobile phone.
After that you can choose Web Upload to upload any picture on your phone to your Flickr account directly.
There is a special Nokia Help section in the FAQ on Flickr in case you run into troubles. I think that this is a great opportunity to publish pictures as soon as you take them.
Please note that you do need a Flickr account for this to work. You can create one for the photo hosting site right from the Nokia page there to get started. It is probably best to do that while you are on a desktop computer as it is more comfortable than having to register using the phone's rather clunky pad instead to do so.
Update: We removed the links as they have been removed and are no longer available on Flickr. This was an option for classic Nokia phones which are not produced anymore nor are they supported. Most modern phones come with options to upload images to various services automatically.Advertisement
